Starting XI: Chippa v AmaZulu
Absa Premiership Starting XI: Chippa United v AmaZulu 22 August 2017
Teams: Chippa United v AmaZulu
Date: 22 August 2017
Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium
Chippa United will play hosts to AmaZulu in their first Absa Premiership clash on home soil this season.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
AmaZulu had a perfect start to the season after returning from their spell in the National First Division in the last campaign.
Usuthu hosted Free State Stars in round one and managed to bag all three points in their first match back in South Africa’s top flight. Cavin Johnson’s men looked exciting to watch and will be hoping to emulate that performance tonight.
AmaZulu will be without the services of defender Sadat Ouro-Akoriko, who is serving a suspension.
Johnson's charges take on a dejected Chippa United outfit who narrowly lost out to a Thamsanqa Gabuza header in their opening match and will be looking to register their first points of the season.
At the beginning of last season the Chilli Boys looked like a team destined to end at the very least in the top eight while gathering more support with their entertaining brand of football. Dan Malesela’s men will be looking to regain that form when they take on Usuthu as they aim to avoid falling further behind.
Here's how they line up:
Chippa: 29. Mhlongo, 24. Thopola, 4. Macheke, 2. Okwuosa, 17. Maphanga, 11. Mayambela, 15. Zuke, 27. Mabaso, 26. Mbokoma, 32. Lentjies, 9. Sekola.
